Chennai: In a bid to spread awareness about the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic, a local artist in collaboration with a police officer in Chennai has made what he calls a "corona helmet" to dissuade commuters from coming out on the streets during the nationwide lockdown.

"The public at large is not treating the COVID-19 situation seriously, whereas the police personnel are working round the clock to ensure people stay at home and do not venture out so that further spread of the disease can be stopped," said Gowtham, the artist who designed the helmet.

"I came up with the idea and used a broken helmet and papers to prepare this. I have also prepared many placards displaying slogans and handed them over to the police," he added. The police personnel, who are serving 24x7 on the streets, said that the helmet was proving to be useful in making people aware. Police Inspector Rajesh Babu, who wears the gear while speaking to commuters on the streets, said the approach has had a positive effect so far.
